the hour-long debate, including iran, women's rights, and economic policy. >> the u.s. chamber of commerce said professor warns tax policies and her approach to them are the greatest threat to free enterprise. it is said it would cut 700,000 jobs, 17,000 in massachusetts. these are independent groups who have analyzed and pointed this out. i am going to protect the hard- working men and women, the job creators, the people getting up in the middle of the night and creating jobs. >> i think the point here is the chamber of commerce has not talked about my particular proposals. what i am talking about is how scott brown has already voted and also talking about what he said in his own voice last week that it wanted to make crystal clear. and that is that he would like taxes go up for 90% of families in order to protect tax breaks for the top 2%. >> in an appearance on the spanish-language network on thursday, president obama faced tough questions over his immigration policies. including his failure to fulfill a campaign promise to enact comprehensive immigration reform during his first your of

to the commerce clause, individual mandate. we began the litigation and motions were filed by the government. and in oklahoma, when the case was taken up by the supreme court. as of the decision in june, i filed a motion to lift the stay in oklahoma, the eastern district, asking judge white to consider an amendment. as you know, the original challenge was about constitutionality of the cadets. this is about implementation. this addresses the concerns about the irs a world that was adopted may 18 specifically, and the affordable care act's the implementation, if you will, of the employer mandate, the penalty under the law dealing with large employers. it is about that role an inconsistency with the language, the statute, and seeking to hold the pro-government accountable as it relates to implementing that particular portion of the law. host: what about that part of the law? is it unconstitutional or illegal? guest: the specifics include cross that under the aca, a state does not adopt a state health care exchange, then the subsidies, the tax credit, did not issue to the state and consequently
. and on the big issue, the commerce clause, he kept it as narrow as he could under the circumstances. >> right. most of us and certainly the argument going into the case was all about whether the commerce clause of article one gave congress the right to pass this. >> can you compel people to engage in commerce? >> correct. and roberts said no. which was a tremendous conservative victory. but then he turned the corner and he said, well, congress also has the power to tax and this was a legitimate tax under that part of the power. >> this move obviously a brilliant political move on the court. is roberts as good as anybody you've seen over the past let's say quarter century, 30, 40 years politically in working of the court? >> better. >> better than anybody. >> he's brilliant. >> and a better writer. you know, i think the best writer in the history of the supreme court was robert jackson, who served in the '40s and '50s, fascinating, brilliant guy. john roberts is an elegant, beautiful stylist, which is the exception rather than the trial supreme court. he's remarkable man. >> so john roberts pr
.s. hispanic chamber of commerce. the president has not just a commanding lead with latino voters but winning three out of four of the female vote along latinos. romney's problems begin with immigration but they don't end there, do they? >> no. he also doesn't talk about health care. when you talk about small business, small business purveyors are among them are latinos. when he spoke to the chamber and said he didn't believe in health care and the dream act and he went down the line. small business are the ones that are going to be taking advantage of a lot of the health care that obama was able to champion earlier. but then he also has this whole issue of immigration. he talked about dreamers but he talked about the dreamers as if only they should be eligible only if they're serving in the military. a large portion of folks believe that kids that are valedictorians should get a shot at the american dream. his etch-a-sketch plan is not working. >> to this point, steve, i'd like you to listen to an answer he gave mitt romney on immigration when asked about it in his telemundo interview. liste
event, a speech to the hispanic chamber of commerce in california. that was it. on tuesday, his two events were both fund-raisers. they were closed to the public and those were in the great swing state of utah, followed by the great swing state of texas. okay, this is not what it looks like to campaign for president. these are not swing states. republican senator lindsey graham told reporters of mitt romney today, "he's a great guy, he should win this election, but being in utah is necessary to raise money, but he doesn't have to be there, in my view." senator graham continued, "i think what romney needs to do is get into virginia and run for sheriff. this is not rocket science." real clear politics covered mr. romney's mysteriously light schedule yesterday. they quoted a well-connected republican fund-raiser saying, "there's not really a campaign here. he's getting ready for the debates and he's out fund-raising. you've got enough money." real clear politics also notes that in the 19 days following the conclusion of the republican convention, mr. romney spent only 9 of those 19 day
" this morning, i have the article in front of me. the headline is u.s. chamber of commerce launches ads targeting main independent and democrats in montana and ohio. this is headed -- targeted right at you senator sherrod brown from the u.s. chamber. >> this could have been a front page -- two months ago. the chamber -- up to $18 million in television ads which doesn't count radio. i just went by an electronic billboard blaming me for high gas prices here in cleveland. it is the oil industry. they don't like me because of our oil tax breaks and the chinese interests and outsourcing interests are spending money against me because they don't like my position on currency and the big banks on wall street are spending millions against me because they don't like my legislation to break up the six big banks. they're trying to buy the elections and we're fighting back in a grassroots way. that's why earlier when i mentioned sherrodbrown.com, come on and help us because we win this on the grassroots level as does president obama win

people. when you go to kabul today, you see a city with electricity, with commerce, with cars, with movement, with women in school, and the average afghan doesn't want to go back to the taliban way of doing business where there is no music, there no interaction with each other, only on terms that they set for you. and so what you see on your television at night is a political struggle for the heart and soul of the middle east. this has been going on for a long time, and finally the lid blew. egypt was an authoritarian, corrupt dictatorship. tunisia, libya was ruled by qadhafi, syria by assad. and what you see is people who have seen another way of living are saying enough already. i'm not going to be part of that anymore. i'm going to try to change my life and my children's life. within that population, you also have people who are dead set on making sure that that nation and the islamic world goes backward, not forward, and we have to take sides. and if we don't take sides and we sit on the sidelines, we'll pay a price. i think it is better to help people fight the taliban th
a closer look at the beast while they keep a safe distance. the west yellowstone chamber of commerce condemned it, saying the people are lucky they didn't get hurt. >> brian: is that crazy! >> gretchen: it's a wild animal. >> brian: you should look out for bison. >> gretchen: and everything else >> brian: one time i went to adventure examine one of the monkeys brought my antenna. >> steve: on your transcystor radio? >> brian: no. >> gretchen: on your car? why was your toyota celica near a monkey? why were you driving a toyota? >> brian: i know. it was really good. it cost me 220. i had to drive through the park. that's where you go through the zoo. >> steve: dana is from the wild west. >> my grandfather would is said, get your rear end out of the way. but maybe not as, you know. >> steve: let's talk a little politics. the president of the united states got a gigantic dose of really bad news in the form of unemployment numbers that came out on friday, the day after his big speech down there in charlotte. only 96,000 jobs added. unemployment at 8.1%. the underemployment rate, which we

government funded. this one is through the department of commerce. they help you connect with those large corporations that would otherwise probably not look at you as a potential source. >> so peter, this feels to me like we don't hear this part of how government actually contributes through raising the sba cap so there's more capital. making sure that minority owned and women have more opportunities to bid on the big contract. >> certainly, government plays a decisive role in deciding who gets an opportunity for the businesses out there. one of the things i'm curious to hear from you guys at the table, my sense from talking to other business owners is that you're by and large not sitting and waiting for the government to solve your problems. you're waiting for demand to return into the american economy. there are not enough people in america today who can afford to buy your goods and services. that's something that government can influence this in a very direct way. >> i love that issue of demand. sometimes black hair care is called the recession proof industry because we always have de

[applause] liberals hate the south because what they believe is an assignment of ignorance has defeated them in affluence and sophistication. they can barely stand it, but there is so. and it lies in a once in virtue i've yet to mention because much as bill of rights the south, in in even a little has to find a place to live and work and that's where southern hospitality drives the final minute into the dream. because if the liver packs up and leaves, he knows with dread and so

[applause] and he did his master's studies at boston university. i have given you a rather extensive biography. these are certainly three people that are well known and outstanding experts in their field. at this time, i will turn it over to dr. >> thank you. i think the ambassador gave us a rather interesting assignment here. we probably need about five days to review this. but it will be quite interesting. perhaps more generally, we can give a general view -- what i view the problems in the gulf today. and i might set up the situation for
in congress in terms of limiting big government. the commerce clause is not what it was. congress does not have a blank check to write any law on any subject. but as for the supreme court itself, roberts has now established himself as a figure above politics. so as next year he comes to deal with the issue of affirmative action, very likely ending the practice of racial considerations in admissions at the university of texas, he will be able to issue opinions and people won't say, oh, he's just a republican hack. he has a moral and political authority now that is really well beyond what any chief justice has had in a long time. >> so what you're saying is this decision on obama care as it's called was a strategic decision looking down the road when he makes some other controversial decisions if he's that 5-4 swing vote let's say. >> absolutely. it was a decision where he undoubtedly believed what he wrote, that this was a legitimate proof use of the taxing power. but it was also a decision about his role as chief justice. and how he sees the court. he didn't want another bush -- anothe
privacy? what of your convenience? what of your commerce do you want to give up? as i push the arl down. i'm not a free agent here. i'm your servant. you have to give me some guidance. candidly how much do you want to take off as you go through the line in the airport? what we need as a nation going forward is to continuation of the very tough, sometimes overly bitter conversation we've had to get us here. do you want us to get more likely to do this? or are you willing to live with that? and if you've willing to live with that and frankly, if you ask me my personal view, i kind of am, if you're willing to live with that, we kind of metaphorically have to shake hands. okay? because if we say no, this is about as far as i want you to go to guaranty my security. you have done new and creative things and i'm broadly comfortable with most of them. probably some in the room are not but you get the point. i'm saying i can do more but you have to let me know. no. we're kind of cool. leave it where it is. patriot act is far enough. okay. then you have to have the understanding that when bad things
